Ratings, the number of downloads and a known developer are usually good ways to see if an app is safe.

Dropbox This app allows you to share and synchronise files across your smart phone, iPad and computer(s). It requires a simple and free registration. The storage of the data is outside the department's control, so never use Dropbox for sensitive information.
